Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering Curriculum & Courses
Typical Degree Program
Due to the wide breadth of focus areas and specialization degree plans differ greatly between programs. With the thesis based M.S. in Electrical Engineering and the Ph. D. programs, the program of study is developed jointly between the student and the committee with a large degree of guidance by the student’s thesis or dissertation advisor. The department requires a single tools course that may be satisfied by ECE 5371 Engineering Analysis or by a graduate level course in statistical analysis as offered by the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. The department requires a Ph.D. student to enroll in ECE 5120, Graduate Seminar every semester. A typical program for the Ph. D. with an emphasis in semiconductors is shown below.
